Tryon Creek State Natural Area

photos by Tim LaBarge

North of the outer fingers of Oswego Lake is a swath of undeveloped and treed land that resembles Ireland in shape. Tryon Creek State Natural Area occupies over 650-wooded acres. It borders the southern edge of Portland and stretches into Lake Oswego. Terwilliger Boulevard runs along its eastern rim, while cul-de-sacs and gridded housing developments abut to its jagged western edge. Photographer Tim LaBarge documents life inside Tryon’s green space, which buffers the traffic and hurried lives outside of it.
